Garage Sale Season has finally arrived, along with some of the most beautiful weather we’ve seen in a long while. I’ve been doing some heavy thrifting with Evelyn, the sale queen, and Chara. I have a ton of great finds to share!
I also have a bit of personal news. There has been a major development in my life recently and while I won’t publish any gritty details, I do feel that I should mention it. After nearly five years together, the Mister and I have decided to part ways. There’s actually no real drama about it. We both care for each other very deeply and have both valued our time together. We’ve known for a long time that ours is not a relationship meant to last a lifetime. It is time for us to move on.
Of course, it makes me sad, but I am trying to be optimistic about this change. I am finally going to move back into the city, a move that I have been longing to make since before we bought the condo. In a few weeks, Esther and I will be calling a beautiful vintage apartment our home. It’s in a sweet neighborhood in Seattle that is extremely dog-friendly and walkable. I’m quite eager to begin our new life and decorate our new place with all of my finds.
I’m also excited to tell you that I have been hired at Fabric Crush, which is a dream. If you’re in the area, then you should definitely check out this boutique store. It is everything that I’ve always wanted to see in a fabric store, light, modern, with a great selection of fabrics. That is not even to mention my wonderful group of coworkers. I will even be teaching classes, including a quilt finishing class next month.
I can’t wait to share my apartment with you once I have settled in! Until then, I have lots more thrifty finds and quilty goodness to post.
